It's a Wrap eBay auctions - Week 19 Results

Week 19

Well, it wasn't a strong week, but there were a few nice pieces that did fairly well.

The Commander Sisko at $ 3,240 was the top item and went for a very good price. I was going to go after this for my collection, but my good buddy Grant wanted it and so I stepped aside for him. As the top is from the DS9 pilot "Emissary", this makes it a very good deal. The last Sisko was the Commando costume from "In a Pale Moonlight" that went for $ 3,100, so this is right in line with that.

That the Major Kira costume went almost as high as the Sisko costume at $ 3,206 is a testament to the loyalty of some Kira fans. These costumes have all been going over $ 3,000. The last one went for $ 3,601 and the one before that at $ 3,250, so this one went about where it should based on recent history, but way above where other character costumes, have been going.

The Lore in Pakled costume was a beauty and a very memorable costume. This was from Lore's second appearance in the season 4 episode "Brothers" (thanks to those who pointed the listing error out!). It went for $ 2,155, which is a strong price, but for such an important costume, not unusual.

The Geordi LaForge Starfleet Uniform, had fading on both sleeves from storage problems, yet it still went for a very healthy $ 2,015. I think this is a bit strong for a uniform with damage. The two piece TNG unifoms have been going high lately though, with the last background player version going over $ 2,200! So who knows?

The Dax First Contact style jumpsuit went for $ 1,891. The last one went for $ $ 2,030. Still a great deal less than the Kira's.

At $ 1,353, the DS9 Romulan Uniform was a decent enough deal, but quite the value the two previous
Tal 'Shiar versions that went for $ 1,425 and $ 1,535 were I think. One had boots and they both had holsters I believe.

The Picard Riding costume is notable in that my friend Giles Aston, who many of you may know as the Picard look-alike, won this costume to add to his Picard collection of costumes.

The Klingon Over Robe at $ 910 is a good price on an interesting piece of Kllingon costuming. This can best be scene in the Klingon Council scenes in the Next Gen episode "Sins of the Father".

The Nilva Ferengi costume at $ 878 was agreat deal. These Ferengi costumes are AWESOME and they regularly go cheap. Everyone who has one of these loves them.

The Vulcan Captain Carbon Creek costume at $ 660 was an awesome deal on a beautiful costume. I am amazed it went that cheap. There is another this week, though distressed and not as nice.

Finally, the Starfleet Academy Red Squad Cadet costume was a great deal at $ 637. I keep saying these are great deals, as are teh Ferengi, and so look here for value in the future.

As far as props go:

The Medical/Engineering Scanner saw a lot of action and went for $ 2,181, which is prety healthy for a prop like this, but not unexpected as it lit up.

The gold Enterprise model from "First Contact" went for an astounding $ 1,411. What I think is odd is that this model was NOT broken up in First Contact. Look at the scene. The Enterprise is all the way on the left of the ship display and is clearly seen intact after Jean Luc breaks the models on the right side (The "C" and the "D"). I think someone paid WAY too much for this.

The Enterprise Photonic Torpedo at $ 1,375 was a steal! This is a freaking PHOTON TORPEDO!!!! I think the buyer got a great deal, but will have to pay a ton for shipping! As I mentioned in my preview, there should be four of these based on how many I have seen in Enterprise.

The Klingon mask went for $ 970 which was far less than the last one which went for $ 1,526. The others have sold for $ 578, 598 and 835. I want to get one of these for when I get a Klingon costume, but i won;t pay high for it as there should be a bunch more.

The Voyager Galley Table went for $ 799. Not sure what to make of this prop. Not particularly interesting, but very cool if you put it in your kitchen!

The Enterprise Engineering Console at $ 746 was a bit high I felt for the piece as I wasn't very impressed with this. But as I always say, what people like in props is a very personal thing.

The Nausicaan sidearm with holster was a great deal at $ 511. I predicted it would go cheap, but this was crazy low!


So here are some awards for the week:


Best Costume of the Week: While the Sisko is an important costume, the fact that the pants are wrong, leads me to give the award to the Lore in Pakled costume

Best Prop of the Week: An easy one in a week of bad props. The Medical/Engineering Scanner at$ 2,181 is clearly the cream of the crop.

Best Buy of the week: The Enterprise Photonic Torpedo at $ 1,375. A freaking Photon Torpedo at a great price!

Worst Buy of the week: The gold Enterprise model from "First Contact" at $ 1,411 and this may not even be screen used!

Sleeper of the Week: The Vulcan Captain Carbon Creek costume at $ 660. A beauty at a greta price!


And here are some prices realized:

5 HIGHEST PRICED ITEMS THAT SOLD

The Commander Sisko $ 3,240

Major Kira costume $ 3,616

Medical/Engineering Scanner $ 2,181

Lore in Pakled costume $ 2,155

Geordi LaForge Starfleet Uniform $ 2,015.


Good luck this week all!

Looks like I get 2 awards this week, one for best buy and one for worst buy. I thought my purchase of the Carbon Creek Vulcan Captain was going to get blown out of the water but to my suprise I got it for a great price. I also bought the gold 1701 model and was ready to pay more! I remember this scene and HAD to have this model. There were a few other people who wanted it almost as much as I did as there were 20 different bidders and 32 bids total. I kinda figured you would write about this one ;)
One of the other costumes I picked up was the Flotter costume. A one time used costume but memorable to me and I think it looks very nice (love the colors).
I added 4 other lesser items this week to my collection.

Week 20 has some NICE props and I think the dollar total for week 20 is going to be STRONG. Look at that tricorder already at $3225.

Jason:

The Carbon Creek costume was a steal. Truly beautiful and at an unbelievable price. I know my buddy was ready to go higher and screwed up his last second bid.

The Flotter costume is pretty cool if you are a voyager fan. I just saw that episode. Yeah, the colors are very cool.

Did you do research on the gold Enterprise model? because it definitely didn't get broken in the movie. I am curious as to why you went high on this.

Good gets this week.

Voyager is my favorite series plus my son and I are watching it straight through right now. We are on the 4th season right now.

I did not do any research on the 1701 model. I will check it out and if it did not get broken I might have to put it back together.

I bought another lesser ship model from another collector the other day. I woould like to have a few by the time all the IAW stuff is complete.

Good to hear your buddy messed up his bid on the Carbon Creek costume!

Displaying costumes is one thing, but how does one display a PHOTONIC TORPEDO? Awesome prop!

Apollo 13 said...

Congrats, Jason.
Do you mind saying which other ship model you bought?

Jason S said...

Apollo

The other lessor ship was a Reliant type ship with some added nacells on it. Most likely a background prop.
